Engage your students and practice core ELA skills with these fun, short tasks!
What is an Essential?
Essentials are short activities linked to basic reading, writing or language skills. In these activities, students practice these basic skills in real world situations that feature topics they know and love. We include final questions that help students develop critical thinking skills.
Each Essential also includes a complete teacher guide, answer key and rubric.
Word of Mouth
In Word of Mouth, students take on the role of a speech therapist and use sentences about the city of Portland to help patients using voice intonation by correctly punctuating sentences, including commas with coordinating conjunctions.
